I never said a lightweight would take out a heavyweight.

The P4P term wasn't created just for the lower weight classes, back when fighters were known as the P4P Best Boxer's in the World, it was to establish that while they could have beat anyone in their weight class, but fighting someone in a heavier weight class just wasn't going to happen, but their skill set and technique was much more fluent they proved to be the quality fighter other fighters couldn't establish in other divisions. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a perfect example. Could he beat Kiltschov(sp?)? Hell no. But his style, technique, everything he does is something Kiltschov doesn't display as well as Floyd does and did better than anyone else in boxing and that's why he was the P4P best boxer in the world.

Hence why Mir doesn't think Fedor is the P4P King of MMA, due to Fedor's ground game. It's not very technical or fluent as a Big Nog or Penn, he's just very physical and can man handle almost anyone he grapples with.

This Time ... Break It!
